While car manufacturers in India are showing great recovery in terms of domestic sales, passenger car exports are still in the red. As a whole, the export volume of the Indian passenger car industry has registered a de-growth of 66.8 per cent. Still, companies are working hard towards increasing both sales and exports. Here, we shall discuss the top ten passenger car which had the highest export volume between April and June 2020.

Although Volkswagen Vento doesn’t enjoy a lot of sales success in the Indian market, it had the biggest export volume out of all cars manufactured here, with a total of 8,983 units from April to July 2020, which is a 54.8 per cent de-growth compared to 19,893 units during the same period. It narrowly beat Ford EcoSport, which had an export volume of 8,850, which is a massive 61.1 per cent decline over the 22,737 units sold during April-July 2019.

Kia managed to export 7,800 units of the Seltos from India, which puts it at the third position. At fourth place, we have General Motors, which doesn’t have operations in India anymore and manufactures exclusively for export. The company managed to ship 7,781 units of the Chevrolet Beat hatchback to foreign markets, a 71 per cent drop on YoY basis (26,842 units from April to July 2019).

Hyundai Verna also recorded a massive YoY drop of 75.2 per cent in export, with just 6,049 units (April-July 2020) compared to 24,384 unit during the same period last year. Maruti S-Presso and Hyundai Aura, managed an export volume of 4,055 and 3,006 units, respectively, and as these are relatively new products, there are no YoY figures for comparison.
